Harold Budd

The White Arcades - 2023 Reissue

    First time vinyl repress of a classic Harold Budd album originally released in 1988. Partly recorded at the Cocteau Twins studio with production help from Robin Guthrie and Brian Eno, the album’s effortless blend of glistening synths, limpid piano notes, foggy textures and space result in a beautiful contemplative whole. “Although its aura is ethereal and unworldly, Budd's music is actually an exemplary form of humanly useful music.

    When the mundane urgencies of life, or the nonsense of our political culture, get you frazzled, which is pretty much every day these days, you can put on this music and imbibe its stillness and grace. His records are exactly the kind of music you'd play for calm and solace during a bereavement — or at a service sending someone to their final resting place. Harold Budd sounds like heaven on earth.” Simon Reynolds

    John Cale

    Word For The Dying - 2023 Repress

      First time vinyl repress of this John Cale album, originally released on the Opal label in 1989, produced by Brian Eno.

      “‘Words For The Dying’ has at its heart The Falklands Suite, Cale’s baroque if heartfelt response to the Anglo-Argentinian War, which finds him setting the poems of his beloved Dylan Thomas to music. When building songs around another’s words, the results often sound forced, but Cale does a magnificent job of compressing Thomas’s lyricism into neat melodic phrases, themselves just components of a vast harmonic mega-structure scored for the USSR’s Orchestra of Symphonic & Popular Music of Gostelradio. A project that could easily have collapsed under the weight of its own ambition is instead a late masterpiece, thanks to Cale’s deep-seated compositional genius, and unobtrusive but resonant production from Brian Eno.” - Kiran Sande

      I Will Not Be Sad In This World / Moon Shines At Night

        2CD anthology of two classic albums - ‘I Will Not Be Sad In This World’ / ‘Moon Shines At Night’ - by the Armenian master of the duduk.

        ‘I Will Not Be Sad In This World’

        “Without doubt one of the most beautiful and soulful recordings I have ever heard” - Brian Eno

        “It sounds for all intents like music from another world” - Los Angeles Times

        A widely acknowledged classic by the undisputed master of the duduk, a traditional woodwind instrument from Armenia. A double-reed instrument of ancient origin and noted for its unique, mournful sound. Originally released in the Soviet Union in 1983, Brian Eno came across the musician during a visit to Moscow in the late 1980s and subsequently introduced the record to Western audiences via a reissue on his Opal label.

        ‘Moon Shines At Night’

        “Gasparyan’s playing produces an equal amount of sadness and sweetness in every note, every phrase, and every song. Simply graceful.” - All Music

            Dallas Acid are a synth-heavy dreampop trio from Austin, Texas and the first new signing to All Saints Records in a number of years. Having previously collaborated with Laraaji on the acclaimed ‘Arrive Without Leaving’ album from 2018, their unique mix of minimalist electronic music with a big ballad sensibility creates gorgeous, utterly compelling soundworlds.

            “Majestically immersive sound spaces in which to float, wonder, move and trance” - Laraaji

            The sky-gazing wonder of Linda Beecroft’s vocals on the title track recall the breathy intimacy of Mazzy Star, yet draped with almost symphonic banks of synthesizers blinking into infinity, expertly operated by Christian Havins and Michael Gerner, redolent of the deepest end of classic kosmische music.

            Other tracks such as the instrumental ‘Circuit Jungle’ touch upon the Fourth World experiments of Jon Hassell with a mixture of Moog abstractions and FX-drenched acoustic percussion. At other points they touch upon the rain-drenched soundtracks of Vangelis and other more mysterious, electronic arthouse film scores.

            For fans of Peaking Lights, Mercury Rev, Cocteau Twins, Laraaji, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Spiritualized, Moon Duo, Laurel Halo, Panda Bear.

            Bring On The Sun

              A collection of brand new studio recordings, recorded by Davey Jewell (Peaking Lights / Flaming Lips) and mixed by Carlos Niño (Leaving Records). A magical mixtape of tracks that run the full gamut of Laraaji music, from blissed-out percussive jams to reflective vocal hymnals to trance-inducing drones. A perfect Laraaji entry point on his never-ending creative journey through inner light. Available as an 8-track double vinyl LP (with digital download card) and 10-track double CD with ‘Bring On The Sun’ on the first disc and a bonus disc of ‘Sun Gong’, the previously vinyl-only pre-cursor to the main album.

              Laraaji is a musician, mystic and laughter meditation practitioner based in New York City. He began playing music on the streets in the 1970s, improvising experimental jams on a modified autoharp processed through various electronic effects. Brian Eno saw him playing one night in Washington Square Park and invited him to record an album for his seminal ‘Ambient’ series (‘Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance’, released in 1980). Laraaji went on to release a prolific series of albums for a wide variety of labels, many of which he recorded himself at home and sold as cassettes during his street performances.

              In recent years he has had his career celebrated extensively, with two All Saints retrospectives - ‘Celestial Music 1970-2011’ and ‘Two Sides Of Laraaji’ - as well as reissues on Glitterbeat and Leaving Records / Stones Throw. He has also collaborated with a new generation of underground musicians such as Sun Araw - their recent album ‘Professional Sunflow’ (Superior Viaduct) being the fruit of the live shows they played together in 2014.

              Brian Eno

              The Drop

                Reissue of 1997 album ‘The Drop’. Described by Eno as an interpretation of jazz from a vague, alien perspective, ‘The Drop’ also integrates his interests in the melodic yet percussive basslines of Fela Kuti and the complex, labyrinthine melodies of The Mahavishnu Orchestra. Ever the provocateur, on this record Eno defies classification, avoiding association with pop, existent sonic approaches and even music itself.

                Various Artists

                Greater Lengths

                  A selection of highlights from the All Saints label, including Brian Eno, John Cale, Harold Budd, Jon Hassell, Roedelius, John Paul Jones and Laraaji, alongside specially commissioned interpretations by contemporary artists including Bee Mask, patten, Sun Araw, Hieroglyphic Being and James Blackshaw.

                  29 track double disc compilation featuring sleevenotes by Mark Prendergast, author of ‘The Ambient Century’. CD1 is an introduction to the some of the original highlights recorded for the label over the years, whilst CD2 draws the dots between the innovations of the All Saints artists and a younger generation of experimental artists working in a sympathetic idiom.

                  Remixes - Inc. Bee Mask / Sun Araw Remixes

                    As the new wave of New Age begins to gain momentum, All Saints present a new series of 12" featuring modern reinterpretations of forgotten classics from original ambient masters. The first part of this project sees a quartet of modern practitioners of electronic healing sounds reimagining four pieces from the back catalogue of New York's experimental visionary Laraaji. Beginning his career improvising trance inducing jams on a modified autoharp, Laraaji was discovered by Eno, studied with Satchidananda and invented laughter meditation while releasing a prolific discography of new age sounds. Within the recent recontextualisation of that oft maligned genre Laraaji has found a new audience among some Piccadilly shop favourites including Jonathan Wilson and Sun Araw, both of whom invited him to join them on tour. It's the latter who features on this 12", combining his trademark stoned skew with the celestial vibrations of "Tilturn" for a strung out trip into the realm of experimental dub. Elsewhere, Spectrum Spools' Bee Mask injects a dose of bass weight into the cystaline chime of "Cave", Ela Orleans creates the first psyche/breaks hybrid with a driving take on the melodic pulse of "Kalimba" and Motion Sickness Of Time Travel cleanses us with the purifying drone of "Space".
